Richard Cork published his major monograph on David Bomberg in 1987 and, a year later in 1988, curated the Tate's first solo exhibition of Bomberg's work. These seminal contributions arguably cemented Bomberg's reputation as one of the most important British artists of the twentieth century. Cork's meticulously researched book remains the most comprehensive publication on Bomberg and the key text for all those researching the artist. Cork will discuss how he discovered Bomberg and what led to him writing the book and curating the exhibition.
